A Christian group predicted that the end of the world will be on Wednesday, October 7, 2015. But because you’re still reading this, the said doomsday prediction obviously failed. However, it’s interesting how online Christian broadcaster Chris McCann got the idea of the exact date of Armageddon. And yes, he emphasized that there are Bible verses that supports his claim.
“According to what the Bible is presenting, it does appear that October 7 will be the day that God has spoken of,” Chris McCann said on his five-part podcast series ‘Why October 7, 2015, is the likely end of the world.’ He is the leader of the eBible fellowship, based in Pennsylvania, USA. The full context of his end of the world prediction is also posted on their official website.
“God destroyed the first Earth with water, by a flood, in the days of Noah. And he says he’ll not do that again, not by water. But he does say in 2nd Peter 3 that he’ll destroy it by fire.” McCann added, noting that the Earth will be annihilated and will be gone forever. He said his calculation was based on the earlier prediction of the late Harold Camping, president of Family Radio.
In case you’re not aware, Harold Camping became famous around the world when he predicted in 2001 that Jesus Christ will return to Earth on May 21, 2011. His Judgment Day prediction was widely promoted through street billboards, banners, and was reported worldwide. And because of this, he reportedly received millions of dollars in donation.
Camping, who passed away on December 15, 2013 predicted that the physical end of the world will happen on October 21, 2011. But because his prediction failed (obviously), the American radio host admitted in March 2012 that he made a mistake, and that predicting the exact date of Apocalypse is “sinful.” But now, Chris McCann has another version.
According to McCann, October 7, 2015 is the 40th period of 40 days (or the 1,600th day) since May 21, 2011, and is therefore the end of days. Citing Revelation 14 of the Bible, he suggested that there is a “strong likelihood that this will happen, but that there’s an unlikely possibility that it will not.” As of posting, he has not yet commented about his failed prediction.
But on a more realistic prediction, we at TN are predicting that mankind will end sooner than anyone could predict. That is, if we will continue destroying Mother Earth. But more importantly, we should always respect every human being, regardless of race, gender and belief…whether the world will end or not.
